Southampton Film Week starts in a couple days and we've got lots of amazing events on this year's programme including our opening night screening of The R&B Feeling - a feature documentary about local artist Bob Parks. Intriguing and fascinating story from his early life and career as part of the early 70s Los Angeles performance art scene through to present day as his art practice continues to develop - but this is more than an art documentary. Often challenging and disturbing the film delves deep into Bob's motivations, thoughts and feelings to reveal the fascinating tale of his art, relationships, loves and life.
Other events on this Saturday include two Halloween specials courtesy of Harbour Lights Cinema - A Nightmare on Elm Street (A Wes Craven Tribute) and for the kids a dress up screening of Tim Burton's Frankenweenie. Also at Harbour Lights this week catch the new documentary Listen to me Marlon and our workshop Making Webseries That Work with Lisa Gifford.
More fantastic events not to be missed include a screening of the 1928 silent film La Passion de Jeanne D'Arc at the Turner Sims Concert Hall with the superb Orlando Consort Choir providing live accompaniment, bringing the sound of the fifteenth century to life.
Regular SFW partner, The Phoenix Film Society has two film screenings on offer this year including the Golden Globe Best Foreign Picture, Leviathan and Macario a contribution to University of Southampton's Mexico Week. Rodrigo Ortiz-Vázquez from the university’s Archaeology Deptartment will give a talk about Mexico’s Day of the Dead to accompany the screening.
